Chocolate Cherry Cake

This is a recipe that my mom got from her sister-in-law, my Aunt Cathy.  She’s not officially my aunt anymore, but I will always consider her my Aunt Cathy.  This is another VERY easy cake recipe, only takes a few minutes to make and is delicious!  If you love chocolate, this is for you.  I had actually completely forgotten about this cake, but last week my sister made the request that I make this cake for lunch after church tomorrow.  So I had my mom dig out her recipe card and I made it today.  And because I needed an “after” shot for this blog post, I just had to cut a piece out and test it.  So, so, so good!  The only piece of advise, be care for any cherry pits that might have made their way into the canned cherry pie filing.  I found one in the piece I cut out, hopefully it’s the only one in there.  Make this today and enjoy!

Chocolate Cherry Cake:

1 box German chocolate cake mix

2 eggs

1 – 21 oz can of cherry pie filling

2 t. almond extract

Mix above ingredients with a mixer.  Spread into a greased jelly roll pan, 10×15.  The pan I had was a bit bigger, still worked fine, just a thinner cake.  Bake at 350 degrees for 23 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean.  Let cool for one hour.

Frosting:

1 cup sugar

1/2 cup milk

4 T butter

2 cups chocolate chips

Heat sugar, milk and butter on stovetop until boiling.  Remove from heat and add chocolate chips.  Stir well until melted and mixed well.  Pour over cake.  Let cool completely.  Enjoy!

    I love how you took a box cake mix and added a few of your own ingredients to transform it into something delish!
